Grzegorz Kowalski ”Pocket”, Foksal Gallery, 1968 (1-13/13)

In June 1968 the Foksal Gallery hosted Grzegorz Kowalski's exhibition entitled Pocket. The author described the exhibition as "a dynamic environment." Kowalski hung a screen across the room, on whose one side were projected photographs and on the other the reflector's light. The reflector's switch was on the ground in the "working zone" so that the audience could play with their shadows that became a background for the projection.
